U of R Rams slot back Mitch Picton and OL Jeremy Zver are taking part in the CFL combine in Regina. Below are some of Picton thoughts:
MP–I really think it’s an advantage to do this in my hometown. I have my family here to cheer me on and I get to sleep in my own bed. And believe it or not I’m not as nervous doing this on my home turf.
ME: Any strange any interview questions?
MP: Not really..just some questions about the family business and why I play football but nothing out of the ordinary.
ME: How did you like your testing?
MP: Really pleased with my 40 time and somewhat disappointed with others. But I’m a football player and one on one’s is my thing.
ME: Did you lean on anybody for advice prior to the combine?
MP: Yes Levi Steinhauer, Addison Richards and my brother Aaron. They just told me that I’m a football player first and not to get too wrapped up in testing number.
MB: Do you have to pinch yourself that this is happening?
MP: Ya I was standing outside the BC Lions door in suit thinking to myself I’m going inside soon to talk with Wally Buono!
